19th April 2006 22:56Dear All Have posted this on Fashion & Beauty already but just to let you all know. Ah yes just cos we were able to get a few bob off the exhorbitant price of cosmetics, the customs are now on the lookout for us! Recently bought some stuff on strawberrynet.com and received a note from Customs looking for the customs duty I owe them on the goods plus VAT at 21%, plus 5 euro postal fee! :twisted: So politicans can cheat the country of millions in unpaid taxes and get away with it, but god forbid that we think we could save a few euro on makeup! Oh no big brother is watching you. :twisted: :twisted: And yes before anyone leaps on me, I know they are only doing their job. May not happen to every order (no VAT if you keep it under 22 Euro), but it happened to mine. So be warned!
